TANGENTS – Abstract and Geometric Art in Northeast Ohio – Opening Reception

It was a wonderful turnout for the opening of TANGENTS at the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve.

I’m proud to be in this exhibition of abstract and geometric art with a group of nine terrific artists (including myself) in NE Ohio; Gianna CommitoDavid Louis Cintron, Mark HowardMark KefferCatherine LentiniNatalie LaneseEd Raffel, and Susan Squires

Curated by artist Jenniffer Omaitz, she says:
Why is making abstract work still important? And how can the process of being an abstract artist lead to greater manifestations of perception? This exhibition aims to excite a deeper interest in geometric art and abstraction in the area and inspire more artists to open up their studio practice.
